Good hearty Sayoyard food

A little way out of town in Leutaz but very close to the Flocons de Sel. Simply cooked mountain restaurant with good food. Nice wine list which was not expensive.

We had lunch on a Saturday after walking up to the restaurant which takes about 1 hour or a bit more from Megeve. We ordered a la carte and I was extremely disappointed! I ordered the Foie de Volaille en terrine maison which had no flavor and was supposed to be served with confiture d'oignions aux figues, well what was... More

In a secluded area just five minutes out of the crowds of Megeve this magic rustic restaurant serves divine food at very low prices especially for midday .Located at the end of a dead end road close to the famous restaurant " la Sauvageonne " which is quite more dear, this wood cabin with its cosy atmosphere makes you feel...

We stayed in Megeve during Christmas time 2014 and we visited this restaurant with my family. The food was classic french and the environment was a typical upscale refuge. A must in Megeve. Will return most definitely.

What a wonderful surprise. We know the centre of Megeve but never went outside. Found this restaurant on the internet, 5 mins drive up the mountain direction of Rochebrune telecabine. Arrived for lunch on the weekend to be greeted by very friendly staff and a wonderful cosy atmosphere of a lovely homely wooden chalet. The food was beautifully presented and... More

The food is always good and the presentation is excellent. If you are looking for a good value in this expensive village, try this restaurant. The service is quick and polite and the terrace is comfortable. I will go back soon.

We have been to this restaurant now for several years and it never fails to please. It's a 10 minute drive from Megeve but well worth it. You are warmly greeted, unlike some French restaurants, and lunch on La Terrace looking onto snow capped mountains is one of life's pleasures. There is an a la carte menu and also a... More

Having read most of the other reviews here I would agree. Le Refuge is about a 10 mins taxi drive out of Megeve. Luckily our hotel dropped us off as another guest was eating at the restaurant next door to Le Refuge - little did we realise what a bonus this was! Our return taxi trip cost us 35 euros... More

We stayed in the centre of Megeve, and when our friends booked this resto I was a bit surprised because it was snowing heavily and our hotel restaurant was incredibly good! More on that in another review. The taxi ride was the most ridiculously expensive we have ever ever had in our life! Euro 70 one way? PLEEEEZZE! But we... More
